Sampler Game Board Update

I managed to get another couple of houses and motifs done on Sampler Game Board on Saturday afternoon/evening, my only stitching time during the weekend as we were out and about for most of it. I could have got alot further but half way through stitching in the spot where the you can see I've done a little bit of another house, I realised I was actually stitching the same house again as the one just up to the left of it, lol, so had to frog before starting the correct house.

I'm really enjoying this project and think the colours used are great, some of my favourites - DMC 926, 3768, and I love the way the red 221 just "pops" off the fabric.



Our letter box has been overflowing over the past few days as I've had stash orders arrive from Drema at Needlecraft Corner, Mary Kathryn, Stitching Bits and Bobs, and 123 Stitch. How could I not take advantage of a good kiwi dollar against the US $.

This will be it for awhile - well, thats until another order from Stitching Bits and Bobs arrives, and any Little House Needleworks or Country Cottage Needleworks releases also have exemption!! Speaking of LHN releases, have you seen Curly Q Ewe? Its coming out at the end of the month - its so cute!! a definate must stitch I think. oh yes, and another exemption will be any newly released Just Nan's over the next few months, I'm looking forward to seeing the 2007 ornament, and of course, now only a few weeks away will be the 2007 Just Cross Stitch Ornaments magazine.

so here's my rather huge stash order, and this isn't including several pieces of fabric, some threads, a new set of 8" Qsnaps, and a Kelmscott Designs Needle Minder.

Little House Needleworks' Comfort, Necessities Sampler, Garden Pleasures & Gourmet Garden.

Country Cottage Needleworks' Icecream Sundae, Home Sweet Home, & Violets

Indigo Rose Bead Blanket Sampler, Happily Ever After -Sisters & Best Friends, Summer Spell -Just Nan, the latest Loose Feather by Blackbird Designs, Beneath the Sunlit Sky, and Good Things -Lizzie Kate
Erica Michaels Random Thoughs of Summer, Spring and Winter, Prairie Schooler -A Christmas Visit and Rain Rain Go Away


Little House Needleworks/Crescent Colours Summer Sampler and Hope, JBW Designs French Country Bunny, Stocking, Mittens, and A Very Merry Christmas.

Its going to be a very hard decision as to which of these to start first, lol, but I think I'm going to start with Home Sweet Home, the colours in this are gorgeous.

as always, thanks for stopping by. Until next time....... take care!

Sampler Gameboard looks great! You've got some GREAT stash too! Love the French Country's by JBW! You and I have very similar tastes! I've got one of your LHN's as a WIP! Have a great time playing in all that stash! Maybe we can do a SAL with JN's Summer Spell! LOL

Your Gameboard is looking wonderful, sorry the frog came to visit and slowed you down a bit though. However,your stashing is fantastic, so that should have made your week much better and helped offset that dratted frog. I'm drooling on my keyboard looking at it. What wonderful goodies you got. With all those new lovelies I don't know how you'll be able to resist and start just one. Have a wonderful time with your new stash and I'm looking forward to seeing your new starts.

Why am I so behind in reading about all this lovely stitching?

You have been working hard at all your wonderful projects Katrina and I can understand why - with this great new stash I'm sure you want to start new things ASAP. Big decisions though on what to do first.

Hope you had a wonderful time celebrating Glen's birthday.

Anita said...

Wow, you have some amazing new stash for sure. Some of them are on my wish list too. I will have a hard time picking what to stitch next as well. Your sampler gameboard is so pretty.

Oh my, your charts are making me drool :D I love all of them, we have very similar tastes! I did the Sister’s and Best Friends: Happily Ever After two months ago, I loved that chart, it turned out really pretty. The new LHN charts are just great aren’t they? I see you stocked up, you better get busy!

I like your gameboard WIP, it’s really coming along nicely.
